A Hartlepool shopping centre’s 2015 ‘Bag It. Beat It’ stock appeal for The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is up and running.

BHF volunteers handed out the special bags to shoppers at the Middleton Grange Shopping Centre which can be filled with donated items to be sold in BHF shops.

Centre manager Mark Rycraft said: “BHF is such an important charity which helps thousands of people around the UK every year who suffer from heart disease.

“I want to encourage our shoppers to continue to donate their unwanted quality items and take them to our centre drop point or local BHF store.”
